Solus Coaches takes two Volvo B9R Panthers 08 November 2011

Solus Coaches has taken delivery of two Volvo B9R coaches with Plaxton Panther bodies.

Solus director Andy Garratt says the firm selected Volvo because the OEM has consistently produced quality vehicles.

"These two new B9Rs offer us the perfect size, fuel efficient coaches for multi-purpose usage, and it's reassuring to know that we have the quality Volvo back-up and support, should we require it," he states.

The B9R coaches are fitted with the Volvo D9B Euro 5 fuel-efficient engine, capable of producing 380bhp and linked to the Volvo I-Shift, 12-speed fully automated gearbox.

They have each been equipped to carry 53 passengers, with the electronically controlled air suspension system providing a high level of ride comfort.

A centre demountable toilet, a rear servery and air conditioning also feature, and passenger entertainment includes TV monitors and full CD/DVD capability.
